31 Family Devotions For Christmas Day SEVEN Dec. 7th

18 Day until Christmas
And Mary said:"My soul glorifies the lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior."
LUKE I:46-47

Nobody likes to wait. As Mary waited for the birth of her son, she worshipped God. How many of us worship while we are waiting on the Lord? We'll have a lot of waiting to do this month. When you find yourself stuck in line at the mall or caught in the middle of a traffic jam, don't get upset. Worship. Thank God for all His blessings to you. Pray for your family. Pray for the frustrated cashier at the counter. Pslam 37:7 says, "Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him." Take some time to get your focus off yourself and your circumstances and just worship the Lord.


Dear Lord, let my spirit rejoice in You today. Help me to think of You and be joyful when I have to wait this month.
Family Activity:
Plan a winter picnic. On a snowy day, prepare a lunch and warm drinks, pack everything into the car with some blankets and set off for the park. Bundle up while you eat and have a blast playing in the snow. If you don't have snow where you live, plan an indoor picnic on the living room floor or in front of the fireplace.
Stress Free Tip:
Stash several Christmas CDs in your car to keep you in the Christmas spirit while driving to work or school.
Easy Microwave Fudge
3 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1(14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
In large microwave-safe bowl, combine chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk. Microwave on high for 2 minutes. Stir in vanilla. Line 8x8 inch pan with wax paper; pour fudge mixture into pan. Refrigerate until firm.
For chocolate walnut fudge, add 1/2 cup chopped walnuts after vanilla.
For Peppermint fudge, add 1/2 teaspoon peppermint flavoring(NOT OIL). Press 3 crushed candy canes on top of fudge before refrigerating.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, Enjoy.
